Its flexibility in customizing workflows allows teams of any size to configure the system according to their specific needs while providing a central location for issue tracking and project management.

  • Integration with many of the most common tools companies are using (Slack, MS Teams, Salesforce, ... etc)
  • Natural workflow with Jira (as product development / project management tool) which makes the full fix and follow up of the tickets / issues very easy to follow
  • Allow multiple different entry points and work flows for as many different needs your teams / company have
  • Simplicity in configuration for simple use cases / work flows
  • Out of box reports

  • Customizability.
  • Reporting.
  • Easy to use for users.
  • It's a little difficult in terms configuration- you should have someone dedicated to administration.
  • For as customizable as it is, there are some things you can't change. These small issues that don't really effect an individual ticket too much, but when you are dealing with dozens and dozens of tickets a day, small granular things add up.
  • A suggestion for improvement would be to allow a hotkey entry for quickly submitting a comment. You can do that for an internal comment (not seen by the user), but not for a public comment.

  • Allows field personnel to create their own tickets without having to call in to the help desk
  • Allows us to easily send updates to requesting parties.
  • Easy to transfer ownership of the ticket to other staff.
  • Easy to use with other Atlassian products.
  • The search function is REALLY bad! We had to come up with a formulaic filter to search by a certain field and if that field is not filled out on a ticket, it doesn't find it.
  • You have to completely enter a ticket before you close the ticket, even if you resolve the issue right away.
  • The entry process is tedious so it is hard to enter information on a ticket while you are talking to a customer on the phone.
  • No Integrated Knowledge base
  • No customer access through social media channels
  • No on-the-fly field changes allowed by staff

  • Otherwise, it’s all good.

  • You can create your own Dashboard and filters using JIRA.
  • You can link multiple related tickets to JIRA.
  • JIRA has its own customer portal so you can easily see the PR tickets created offline and can address it ASAP.
  • Sometimes JIRA is slow to load.
  • JIRA doesn't work well in IE.
  • I can't think of any other area for improvement to be honest. JIRA works as designed.

  • Big Gantt chart on the dashboard lets you see a project's status, tasks, and progress easily. Dashboards are easily customizable with lots of options.
  • Very easy to create service request templates and modify existing built-in templates to fit your needs.
  • Not a lot of online help available to get going
  • Needs Confluence (additional cost) to be able to add a knowledge base

  • Easy Requests for Work
  • Streamlined progress updates and requests for more information.
  • Creating new Request Types is time-consuming and usually requires expert intervention from our IT team for everybody's desk instances.
  • When work items are incomplete for long periods, nothing triggers extra alerts or notifications to management without them polling for it.

  • Easy to use! That's half of the success.
  • Integration with Confluence is a great feature, allowing us to merge tickets with knowledge base. Very useful by software development or when you aim at first-call resolution of user or client requests
  • Further integration with tools such as Enterprise Architect would be nice.
  • Maybe a free to use limited license would be nice for small projects/teams.
